Reality TV comes to life during 'Survivor Weekend'

Ashley tries to stay focused as she tries her hand at one of the Survivor challenges.

Middlesex, N.Y. -- A group of friends decided to make the TV series "Survivor" a reality.

The annual Survivor Weekend is similar to the show, but the competition is limited to one weekend. Contestants take part in several challenges inspired by the series and vote on who to eliminate at the end of each round.

The next Survivor Weekend is happening June 1-3, 2018 at the Evergreen Trails Campground in Angelica, Allegany County.

Ashley Doerzbacher visited the organizers on Canandaigua Lake this morning to try out some of the challenges and explain how you can get involved if you're interested in competing or helping out.
